Reviews for Asparagus, Bacon & Herbed Cheese Pizza
"In my family, anything with bacon is automatically good! We didn't have spreadable cheese, but a few teaspoons of crumbled bleu cheese added plenty of flavor. I was afraid that the asparagus wouldn't be tender with such short cooking time, but it was just fine. This is a nice twist to pizza that is quick, easy, and delicious."
"Fixed this tonight for the first time and it "will not" be the last. Hubby an I enjoyed this very much. Thanks for a great pizza."
"My family really liked this! Pretty quick to make, too!"
"wowweeee wow wow!! my husband, son, and I are head over heels for this pizza! I found a recipe online for garlic-herb cheese spread at http://old.post-gazette.com/food/20011018autumna.asp The end result was absolutely scrumptious! I'm forwarding it to friends!"
"Oh my goodness - this is so delicious. I lightened it up with a little less olive oil & center cut bacon. I also subbed Hidden Valley Garlic Parmesan spread for the Garlic Herb spread. This recipe is definitely a keeper in my house!!"
"Just tried it. . . pretty good. Added mushrooms & sliced pepperoncini."
